Description Backyard birds! I have been striving to make my backyard a very nice habitat for wild birds (and am succeeding immensely!), they bring so much joy to my life. Sometimes I think some of the most 'common' birds are so beautiful and often overlooked, so I decided to honour them with this painting. A cardinal, a blue jay, a nuthatch, a sparrow and a chickadee! And a fairy friend - of course! This is my own original acrylic painting.
